Southwest Area Rugs - Decorate With Flair

Jun 12, 2008
Area rugs are a great choice for your floor, regardless of whether they will be placed on top of a carpet or hardwood. Rugs come in a variety of styles and types. It is a good idea to research the rugs that you like in order to come to a decision.

A little Internet exploration will reveal that there are a multitude of area rug styles from which to select. Southwest area rugs, animal print area rugs, all natural area rugs, Persian rugs, and even bamboo rugs will surface in your search. Of those, one of the more popular styles is the Southwest area rug.

When people hear the phrase 'Southwestern style area rugs', they often have a specific style in mind, and are surprised by the range of colors and patterns that actually exist in the Southwestern style. Some of the Southwestern styles rugs are more in line with the older, more traditional, Native American designs, but others are in a much more contemporary styling which makes for a much more eclectic decorating style for any room.

A number of rug stores that carry Southwestern rugs also offer fascinating selections of natural area rugs and animal print area rugs. If you wish to be inventive, consider combining rug styles in your home decor. It may be helpful to ask for the advice of the store's decorator before finalizing your purchase.

Area rugs are a good, decorative way to keep your furniture in place on slippery floors and can protect wood floors from scratches and other damage. Area rugs are also an ideal way to absorb sound in a a large house or apartment that may sound hollow without carpeting. Area rugs in a subtle Southwest design can prove to be functional while adding just a touch of color, without being overwhelming.

Ultimately, your own personal style should be the most important factor when it comes to choosing a rug. A hired decorator will recommend colors to give your room a certain feel, or certain styles to complement your furnishings, but you will be the one living with the rug on a daily basis, not them. Choose the rug that you love.
